Quadrun is a video game published in 1983 by Atari for the Atari 2600 gaming console.

The object of Quadrun is to destroy enemies ("captors") and rescue friendly characters ("runts") who are attempting to escape from the arena's central building. The player character is invincible, but has only a limited supply of their weapon, an energy ball that destroys the enemies on contact.

One of the four Atari Club games available exclusively via mail order, this title may have been available later in stores in very limited quantities. This is one of the rarest games from Atari, as only approximately 10,000 were initially made. According to programmer Steve Woita, the game was play-tested by a group of young girls.

It was also the first Atari game to feature voice synthesis ("Quadrun! Quadrun! Quadrun!"), and is one of only two games ever made for the Atari 2600 that actually talk (the other is Open Sesame, made by Bit Corp).
